yule tie with president obama leading by just two points. who is it that needs florida the most at this point? >> oh, if obama wins florida he's won this thing. he swept the table. look if he gets florida, it means he's probably got virginia. he's got pennsylvania. which i do think is a little hairy in pennsylvania. i still think it. didn't have the auto bailout aspect. it's got a lot of people in appalachia, very tough on obama, on the southwestern part of the state. i think that state is more in play than people think. i think democrats will squeak it by a couple points. but that one is much more precarious. that's why romney's going in there on sunday. and i don't think that's a head fake. i think he's going there thinking he can win it. so i think i would do it in this order. the democrats most likely to get ohio. and then i'd say virginia and then florida. so if they get florida they get all three. yeah it's good for them. >> and all the money that mitt romney's spending in pennsylvania, i mean, that shows that they want that, they need that state. >> i think you're right.
the presidency without winning. ohio will be the decisive state. if president obama wins florida, it moves the -- >> i could see florida being -- >> what i heard democrats talk about if they can hold ohio, hold wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, hold nevada, they could lose all other swing states, lose the congressional district in maine and come out with exactly 270 electoral votes. gwen: you add it up that way, john? >> that sounds very powerful. what i am struck by is there hasn't been any mystery about this. if you go further than a year ago, president obama's team was very straightforward. they expected it was going to be mitt romney. they were going to make him very unacceptable. the wealthy and out of touch background. they did that. they had a micro targeted micromessage strategy. they said what they were going to do. and stuck to that strategy seems to be with remarkable discipline. if it works, they look really, really smart. the difference between being really smart and really dumb -- [laughter] >> what's remarkable is that they broadcast that, right? >> and the romney campaign
in the past. our poll even has the president up two in florida. so the obama team certainly optimistic and down the stretch they come to keep that sports metaphor going. >> love it. thank you. >> as for the challenger mitt romney needs to rally his troops and out gun the president's skilled operation. peter zand certificate on a plane right now with the romney campaign. he called this report for us right before takeoff. >> reporter: two stops down, three more to go today as part of the 72 hour final sprint for mitt romney here in dubuque, iowa there's been a unique opportunity on the campaign plane as we prepare to board for colorado. several of the governor's top advisers are traveling with the campaign today. of course predictions about what will happen on tuesday. there's a sense they are soaking in these final hours of a campaign that many of them have been working on during the course of the last five years. the governor here again offering bipartisan themes. he has tried to draw attention to the president's comments from yesterday in ohio we said not to boo but encouraged voters
obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday before the election when many african-americans usually plan to car pool after church to go vote. the governor said no. florida's governor said, "early voting will end on saturday night, but i want everybo
was volunteering for obama in florida he said it's unbelievable he says very little activity on the romney side. even media are all reporting -- >> let me get -- i think that is clearly true. but let me give a little word of caution on that. look who republicans are. they are essentially middle and upper middle class white people who come out to the polls. look who our base is. typically people who need government most have worst turn out records by virtue of income and education. no matter what the election if they want to win. >> i want to consider -- they talk in terms -- we talked about this before the taping but they talk in terms of the ground game with democrats of this point, more offices, more personnel just having much -- >> like the -- >> republicans are spending their money on tv ads and democrats are spending on the ground game which democrats have decided this election is more important. i wonder if the republicans need as big a ground game because they have the churches. they have the pastors at the mega churches all over this country telling their parishioners, their members to
closer than it is right now in florida. a poll taken this week shows president obama edging out mitt romney 49% to 47%. that is within the sampling error. florida, of course, has a coveted 29 electoral votes. more than 3.4 million ballots already have been cast. that is more than a third of the total turnout that's actually expected. but early votings has been pretty controversial long lines and calls for an extension of the early voting period. doesn't look like that's going to happen. john zarrella is just north of miami. you voted yesterday before the last day. how did it go? >> reporter: yeah, and i probably should have voted a few days earlier than that as well. it was about two hours and ten minutes from just about where i'm standing now to the point where i was in and out and done voting. but public service announcement out there, for anybody in broward county who was planning to come here today, you might want to think about coming now, because the line is actually down, if you can imagine, from where it was a little while ago. it's probably still a three and a half hour wait
think a lot of the seniors in the state of florida are concerned that with obama care, they know they are going to lose medicare advantage. there is a million seniors in the state of florida who will lose medicare advantage . president obama and senator nelson whacked away medicare advantage for our seniors and that is concerning and that's why the intensity is up in the state of the florida for republicans. >> in the final days before the election, what is the ground game going to be like? >> get out to vote. we are traveling around the state. i have my bus tour and the romney campaign is focused in the state of florida are getting out the vote and after the election, the story that everyone will be talking about is how well the ground game was done for mitt romney and for me and others to make sure our republican voters get out to the polls, and also independents that have been identified as votes for romney and me. >> i know you have a race going on as well how is your race shaping up at this point? >> it is very good. we feel like we will win by a couple of pointos election d
states. ohio and florida. the latest nbc news "wall street journal" m.arist poll shows president obama holding on a six-point lead among likely voters in the buckeye state. meanwhile in florida an creamily tight race there two points separating the candidates with the president ahead in the sunshine states 49 to 47%. so much of this race, of course, depends on these two states. ohio and florida. for some insight i want to bring in our nbc news deputy political editor. let's start with ohio good friend. if mitt romney can't win in ohio what would his path to 270, what would his path to victory have to look like. >> makes it very narrow for mitt romney. if president obama wins ohio he's at 261 electoral votes based on our battleground map. if mitt romney gets virginia and florida he's stuck to 248. new hampshire where he owns a home but the president probably a finger on the scale now we're at 261-261 and we've been talking all along about the midwest and importance of ohio, wisconsin and iowa and the necessity for mitt romney to win two of those three. look at that right there. you got
was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> there is no better surrogate for anybody than bill clinton. he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> author think shift used to be, when she would delair the victory, it was over. >> florida may be
president obama at 49% and mitt romney at 45%. in florida, reuters has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 46%. in michigan, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. and in colorado, a ppp poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire, a new england college poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 44%. tonight, nate silver the "new york times" blog forecasts that president obama has an 81% of winning re-election and that he will win 304 electoral college votes and mitt romney will within 234. and the great thing about next week is i will no longer have to say ppp poll. i'm done with that poll. these polls are tight. these polls, you know, i refuse to use the language the poll shows president obama winning 50, because every one of these polls is within the margin of error. every one of them. so they are really showing something that could be a tie, could be tight. for incumbents this is not considered particularly strong polling. when the incumbent is at 48 and the other guy is at 45, that's considered a risky spot for incu
. >> florida may be too far a bridge for barack obama, but by putting bill clinton and all the things you mentioned, it means the romney campaign has to pay attention to it. >> let's talk about "the washington post" editorial today because it gets to the question of fouling. of breaking the rules and going -- basically saying things that even the totally independent people say is dishonest. here it is, quote, "washington post," through all the flip-flops there's been one consistency in the campaign of republican presidential nominee mitt romney. a contempt for the electorate. how else to explain his refusal to disclose essential information, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. a "wizard of oz" reference. >> he's counting on those things. i
if the new nbc marist poll is correct about florida, florida can decide it before we even, you know, do the late-night counting of the absentee ballots out of cleveland. i mean because florida, if that goes for president obama, that's pretty much the story, i think. >> mr. caputo, let me bring new you've in on this. the poll shows two point ahead for governor romney in florida, that within the margin of error. my team and i were struck with looking at the lines of people early voting in that state today. >> well, those lines are really going to be the indication of how this campaign is going to go. we've had gangbusters early voting turnout in florida. about two million people in a week. because of early voting, democrats have an edge and ballots cast of about 104,000 over republicans. republicans usually do well at mail and absentee ballots. democrats dominate early voting. but guess what? the legislature, rick scott shortened the early voting days. and relative to the early voting hours we had in 2008 in south florida, they essentially cut them by 22% or about 24 hours. so it's going
in florida if he's going to win. so that is a pretty hefty tag to run up. that's all according to the obama campaign. in iowa over a third of voters have already voted there. and among those early voters, you can see 64% of those are supporting barack obama. 35% of them are supporting mitt romney. and that means that mitt romney is going to need to win 59% of election-day voters. in north carolina, nearly half of all ballots have already been cast. and of those who have already been cast, 58% of those early voters favor the president. 41% of those favor mitt romney. so mitt romney is going to need to win 57% of north carolina on election day. we're seeing that pattern play out in the other swing states, too like nevada, virginia, wisconsin. so the republicans are trying to make up ground. in florida we're seeing this because republican leaders are on a two-day bus tour promoting early voting. here is romney florida campaign chairman adam putnam. >> we want to drive people to the polls in every conceivable form. we want oh to be there on tuesday and early votes and we want to open that gap b
, florida, ohio, virginia. obama is winning in all three of those states now and by some margin, number one. number two, the job approval rating has been up over 50% now for four months. >> dana: that is not accurate. >> andrea: another thing, after all the negative ads, bob, mitt romney's favorability jumped up higher. the negative advertisements to paint him as a felon, bully and tax evade dor haven't worked. >> bob: his momentum stopped last week. >> andrea: how do you see that? early voting -- >> bob: wait. early voting -- >> andrea: significantly gone in his favor. don't give me that. early voting was so prominent for president obama. and liberals took the network touting it in 2008. >> bob: we'll talk about this after tuesday. >> eric: one more number came out today, unemployment, disturbing. among blacks 14.3%. jumped again. >> dana: the closing argument -- >> eric: very funny. >> dana: sorry. hel >> eric: they are telling us that cbs is announcing that the new york city marathon is officially -- >> dana: i was just going to say that. we're done. several developments on the libya ter
're spending. both of these candidates tomorrow and monday. obama is going to new hampshire, florida, ohio, wisconsin, iowa, romney going to ohio, new hampshire, pennsylvania, virginia, i guess where they are underscores what they need to do. >> sure. it doesn't exactly look like your summer vacation, does it? they're all in ohio multiple times. >> and that one extra hour we'll get tonight, they'll probably go to ohio. >> but obama needs -- they both need ohio. let's stipulate that. but he's got a midwestern strategy. if he can do ohio, wisconsin and iowa, he believes he could put it away. romney of course ohio. but he needs virginia and florida. needs if he is going to get his path to 270 and that's why you see him in these two states. >> one thing i mentioned to jessica yellin earlier, the obama crowds in these final few days are no where near where they were four years ago. they were huge four years ago. i don't know if that's a concern to them. i don't necessarily buy that. i think they would love to have tens of thousands of people show up as they did four years ago. that's not happen
for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was declared the victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for bara
the polls except rasmussen, who has the race tied at 49. florida, all the policy out this week has obama leading romney, but very close. and in the commonwealth, up 5 points but cbs has the president up by two. north carolina, rasmussen has romney up by 6 and survey usa has the governor leading by 5. new hampshire, new england college has obama up by 6 over mitt romney. last week rasmussen had romney up by 2. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the two you mentioned were at 48. that's a sign of vulnerability. obviously you have seven candidates on the ballot. i think those polls that had the plus four, plus five overstated obama's support because they overcounting
leading by 2 in ohio, 48-46. colorado, they have romney up by 3. 50-47. but a cnn poll has 50-48, obama. nevada, all the polls have the president lead bug it is close. same thing in wisconsin. president is ahead in all the polls except rasmussen, who has the race tied at 49. florida, all the policy out this week has obama leading romney, but very close. and in the commonwealth, up 5 points but cbs has the president up by two. north carolina, rasmussen has romney up by 6 and survey usa has the governor leading by 5. new hampshire, new england college has obama up by 6 over mitt romney. last week rasmussen had romney up by 2. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the
journal/maris poll shows obama leading by six points. it's also close in florida. in this poll, obama has a two-point edge. that's within the sampling error. but a mason dixon poll shows obama trailing romney by six percentage points, so a mixed picture there from two different polls in such a key state. >> democrats are hoping, they're only three days away from taking back control of the u.s. house, but as athena jones reports, they face an uphill battle. >> republicans won control of the house in 2010. riding a wave of victory by tea party-backed candidates carrying a message of fiscal conservatism and strong opposition to obama care. so what's going to happen this time around? >> it's all got to go! >> back in september, nancy pelosi had high hopes for her party's prospects. >> we have a very excellent chance to take back the house. >> so did republican house speaker john boehner. >> i continue to feel confident about house republicans' chances of holding on to our majority. >> republicans have 242 seats to the democrats' 193. so democrats need a net gain of 25 seats to win the majorit
